The bus leaves Lynden High School at 7:00 a.m. sharp. Don't be late.
Try to be there by 6:45. The bus arrives at Mt. Baker usually about 8:30ish weather depending.
Students are to get back on the bus by 3:00 p.m.
The bus usually arrives back at LHS by about 5:00 p.m.
Many students have cell phones or can borrow a chaperone's so that they can call a parent as we get close to Lynden. That way they do not have to wait at the high school very long.
Lessons (which are a bargain by the way!) start at 9:00 am and usually end around 11:00 am. I highly recommend lessons, even for those who know how to ski or snowboard. There is always room for improvement!
Students in 5th grade ski or board for free at Mt. Baker! They will receive a free lift ticket by showing a valid student ID or other ID that shows their age. This year we are opening up the program to 5th graders but they must be accompanied by an adult. The bus ride price is the same as a single person though! So a six week ride package for $125 is good for the 5th grader and adult together!

Dec. 3, 2013There are only a couple more weeks left to sign up for the bus. If you have any questions about anything, please email me. The secretaries at LMS, LHS, and LCHS have collection envelopes for your completed forms.
Nov. 14, 2013Realized I did not have the WR lessons and rentals form on here. It is now. This form is only needed if you are getting rentals or lessons.
Nov. 5, 2013Nearly all the prices have been updated and the three needed forms have been uploaded. All should be good.
Have any questions? Email me!
